Early Childhood Outcomes
The Early Childhood Outcomes in Illinois module was developed by Early CHOICES. This module reviews the three Early Childhood Outcomes that are used to help measure the impact early childhood intervention has on a child’s ability to have positive social relationships, acquire and use knowledge and skills and take appropriate action to meet their needs.
ISBE has compiled this Resource to organize the various supports to high quality early childhood outcomes.
Run time of each section averages 10-15 minutes with some a little shorter and some a little longer. Note that each section includes numerous resources and reflective activities so actual completion time might be a little longer for each section. It should take approximately 90 minutes to get through all the sections and their corresponding activities.
The closing activity will take approximately 30 minutes to complete as you review a case study and practice using some of the tools and resources shared to go through the three early childhood outcome ratings.
A Reflection Guide has been developed for you to capture your notes and document reflections as you navigate the module. It also includes resources that are referenced throughout the module including the Decision Tree for Summary Ratings.
